The earpiece speaker has two small prongs that sit on top of the connector. If you dropped you iphone and cracked the front glass, its very possible the earpiece speaker shifted a bit moving the prong connectors off of the contact. The second picture shows the prong connectors I'm referring to: iPhone 4 Earpiece Speaker

When you replace your front glass, make sure the earpiece prongs are in position to the contact before putting it back together.
